Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Ilford will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Ilford.

My wife and I own a semi-detached Victorian house in Ilford. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Alliance & Leicester to clarify?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ilford and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.

About to purchase a new build flat in Ilford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ilford

    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Ilford I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Ilford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
